Janet has it right.  People need to be less testy, aggrieved, and defensive.  No one intends to misspell or misspeak or miswrrite.  That's why they're called accidents.

Now, if we can all agree that "cemetery" no A,  "grammar" has no E, and just as "hers" and "his" have no apostrophe,  "its" has no apostrophe if it's used as a possessive pronoun, as the wagon train had "its" own problems.
